Around the world, the effects of climate change are felt most acutely by those people who are least responsible for causing the problem.

These are the people who have least access to resources and technology to adapt to the consequences and to act to reduce their emissions.
Climate justice means addressing the climate crisis whilst also making progress towards equity and the protection and realisation of human rights.
